Well, not quite that bad. But, A crime surge has accompanied Wyoming’s oil boom. Serious crimes including aggravated assault and larceny are up 17 percent in the Douglas area since 2009, according to the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.
Wyoming oil booms have been accompanied by crime surges in the past as well. A feature film on Ed Cantrell was in the works back in 2010. I don’t know if it ever came to be.
The A&E Channel TV show “City Confidential” did a story on the Ed Cantrell/Michael Rosa saga a few years ago. The DVD is available on Amazon for thirteen bucks. A grainy version is available free on Youtube.
